For Money and Elders

Robert W. Blunt

University of Chicago Press

The epilogue reflects on colonial understandings of ritual, elderhood, and sovereignty after the end of Moi’s rule. It explores emergent fantasies of sovereign power and capacity—the ability to dissimilate—as a distinctive imaginary of sovereignty after 2002 and the Kibaki era of constitutional reform, and whether reform represents a real break from Kenyan understandings of sovereignty in the past

Keywords:   ritual, elderhoood, sovereignty power, Kibaki era, constitutional reform
